What Counts In Heavy Industrial Machinery: The Dollars & Cents of Advanced Composites In Aluminum Extrusion

Posted by Patrick McSweeney on Feb 12, 2020

Aluminum extrusion—or the process of manufacturing aluminum alloy parts with definitive cross-sectional profiles—is on the rise. The global aluminum extrusion market size, valued at about $80 billion in 2018, is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 5% from 2019 to 2025. The U.S., China, and India combined are expected to comprise close to 60% of the global construction industry growth overall by 2030, with extrusion increasing in these countries.

With extrusion producing aluminum alloys that have the potential to be strong yet lightweight (and also be potentially less expensive than steel and be recyclable), this heavy industrial machinery is quite critical to key industries such as automotive that seek to produce lighter weight cars, trucks, and public transportation vehicles to address consumer and government demand for greater fuel-efficiency. Ford has its F-150, with aluminum frames, and luxury car makers like Audi, Mercedes Benz, and Land Rover are also looking to the process and these lightweight materials. Not only are these heavy machinery systems important but also the critical parts that keep these systems running, which is where advanced composites can really count!

The “Ins & Outs” of Carbon Fiber Composite Parts in Industrial & Aviation Applications

Posted by Patrick McSweeney on Mar 20, 2019

Manufacturing has grown tremendously over the last few decades, with worker output per hour increasing 2.5 times since 1987 and productivity estimated at about 1.7 times higher, says the National Association of Manufacturers. The global economy is said to be experiencing reinvestment in manufacturing and trade, with a resurgence in the U.S., China, and other countries. China remains at the top; however, the U.S. can take this spot if they focus on transformative manufacturing technologies within their products and processes.
